of the secrets of the fbi. fran, a really basic question here. if you just walk up to someone on a staff and say, hey, the general would like me to have classified documents, is that all there is to it? would they likely hand them over on that? >> no, but you have to understand the military culture. i visited petraeus in afghanistan on business and he walks into a briefing, he speaks to you about sensitive military matters, the staff sees that, there's a military culture and so, if you then ask for a document and suggest that the general has offered it to you in some way or sanctioned your having it, it's very difficult for a subordinate military member to either question the general's guest or the general himself about that. and so, it's not really clear, did petraeus actually direct that she could have these documents? did he communicate with his subordinate soldiers and command? we don't know that so it remains unclear about the circumstances. >> so, ron, if it's a staff member who sees this sort of relationship or thinks they see such a relationship and they hand over information, is just th
of that company and that autonomy misrepresented its financial condition. late today the fbi and ousted is investigating the accounting irregularities exposed by h-p. ironically oracle passed on the opportunity to buy autonomy 1/4 hewlett-packard was offered a deal. oracle said it was overpriced at a much slower $6 billion. and one of the oracle executives critically involved in that decision was a fellow by the name of mark heard, the former h-p ceo who was forced out to back in 2008. hedge fund manager avoided a kit quarter of a billion in losses and to join stocks in which he held major positions. he quietly sold his stake in those companies of taking short positions and was awarded $9 million for that brilliant move by sec capitol, the company that owns a hedge fund. today the sec, no relation to s. a. c., charged mark thomas with avoiding those losses by using inside information. the sec said he was told by doctors conducting trials on an alzheimer's drug that the drug was no good before the doctors presented their evidence to investors. the largest in tech -- insider-trading actio
acknowledged having with the woman. where does the fbi investigation stand right now? >> in terms of general petraeus, it's been winding down. it was winding down the first week it went public in november. there was no evidence found he had committed a crime, and no indication he had improperly sent classified material out or in any way breached national security. >> was it winding down -- if it was winding down, why did this explode publicly? do you have a good handle on why it became such a sordid sex scandal, if you will? >> any time an investigation concludes, if it's not being prosecuted or it's just being finished, these type of things start to get out. >> the fbi hopes since it was winding down, there weren't serious criminal allegations if you will or violations of national security, they would have liked to have kept this quiet. >> they would have kept it quiet until such time as the case is over and make whatever notifications, but the no notifications of the white house would be determined by the attorney general, and the attorney general could say at this point make the notificat
to know who changed these talking points, and here with more on that, the author of the secrets of the fbi, chief washington correspondent for newsmax.com ronald kessler is back along with the former assistant secretary of defense, bing west is here with us as well. this is very frustrating to me because i feel we've been lied to. here we have this event happen, almost instantaneously petraeus knows what happened. the libyan president told us within a day what had happened. people on the ground told us what had happened. the state department watched in real-time. five days after, susan rice didn't know what happened and two weeks later the president couldn't say definitively it was a terrorist attack. is that plausible? >> shawn, there's no reason to have the argument in a way because every day the president is given a daily brief by the cia, so all one has to do in one of these intelligence committees is say well, let me see the brief that the president received on those days. it's either going to be in there or it's not. the problem when the white house doesn't want to even reveal what w

in afghanistan. meanwhile the fbi agent frederick humphries who launched the investigation of emails is being investigated by the fbi for his role in the case. specifically why he took concerns about this case to republican members of congress. house and senate panels are expected to meet again today with fbi and cia officials. they want to know whether national security was jeopardized and why congress didn't know about the investigation sooner. during a news conference on wednesday president obama praised david petraeus. >> general petraeus had an extraordinary career. he served this country with great distinction in iraq, in afghanistan and as head of the cia. by his own assessment he did not meet the standards that he felt were necessary as the director of the cia with respect to this personal matter that he's now dealing with, with his family and with his wife. and it's on that basis that he tendered his resignation and i accepted it. >> the house panel is looking into the government's handling of the deadly september attack on the u.s. consulate in libya. tomorrow they will hear from da
follow the facts. we do not share outside the justice department, outside the fbi the facts of ongoing investigations. we made the determination as we were going through the matter that there was not a threat to national security. >> let's jump right in and bring in our friday morning political power panel. we have jackie kucinich political reporter for "usa today", democratic strategist blake zeb and msnbc contributor robert trainum. great to have you all here. we just heard from congressman king earlier today saying the general was asked right off the top whether the affair had an impact on his testimony. he said no. they moved on. but are all indications then that the affair is now a side note and lawmakers are truly focused on what took place in benghazi and the intelligence they have now? >> this very minute, yeah. i think that's the case. will that remain the focus? i don't know. because there's a lot of questions still out there about petraeus and his relationship with his biographer as well as joe kelly in tampa. and general allen. i mean, there are a lot of moving parts here.
at the present. first of all, there's an fbi investigation ongoing and that will give us the definitive word on what transpired. putting together the best information we have today, the current assessment is that what happened in benghazi was, in fact, initially a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired hoyers before in cairo. a copycat attack which were prompted of course by the video. >> senator, you said that two days before that, director petraeus said it was terrorism. why didn't ambassador rice call it terrorism two days later? >> because she could speak publicly only on unclassified speaking points. i have some concern with those speaking points. but let me correct one thing. >> right. but what are the concerns and why speak at all? in other words, why was there a reference to it being a terrorist attack taken out of the public talking points? >> that is something that we're going to find out. but it was. that's the point. now, with the allegation that the white house changed those talking points, that is false. there is only one thing that was changed, and i've checked into
" in the investigation. back on october 27, out of the blue, he got an alarching phone call from an fbi employee about the general's extra-marital affair. we talked about the sex scandal, the benghazi and the fiscal cliff. nice to see you. >> great to be with you. >> greta: all right. this benghazi mess, fora lack of a better word, would you be in favor of a select committee instead of having several committees trying to investigate the house and the senate, having a streamlined, one select committee, investigate and get to the bottom of this? >> i know that -- i have met with our speaker and we are talking about it. i am for what is best, in terms of making sure the american people got the bottom line on what has happened. it's so frustrating about the benghazi situation is that the administration's story has just changed almost daily. and when you think about it, take a step back, you know, our ambassador died, others died here. this is so beyond politics, this is about our national security. this is about life and death of americans, civil servants, this is about the safety and security of our mili
: fox news confirmed a friend of the petraeus famly, jill kelly, contacted the fbi said she got threatening e-mails from anonymous e-mail account, that e-mail, those anonymous e-mails were discovered to be linked to broadwell, the mistress of general petraeus. that kicked of the investigation into high gear over the summer. lawmakers and the white house apparently did not know anything about it. the white house says it didn't learn about any of this until just last week, right after election day and just as controversy continued to grow over the benghazi terror attack. kelly wright live in washington with more for us now. >> reporter: jenna, good morning to you. just as you said this is something very shocking to washington as well as mysterious. fox news learned fbi investigators confronted now former cia director david petraeus about his former relationship paula broadwell. the fbi discovered the affair months ago after jill kelly, a petra friend went to the fbi began receiving threatening e-mails from another woman. she was concerned someone was blackmailing petraeus. some qu
to testify tomorrow. are you concerned over the way the fbi handled the situation so far? specifically when you look at this? do you think the president should have been told about the investigation earlier? >> well, i'm on homeland security and my first priority is to ensure the national security of this nation but as well i want to not have us forget that we lost four valiant americans and we must continue to mourn them. it must be a sad time for their family. but i believe in process. and i do believe there is a time when the president of the united states should be notified. however, the fbi proceeds in investigations all the times. we should have some standards as to whether or not the fbi was in order in looking at what i consider may have been private matters. if it had to do with national security or they thought a crime was in play and they had the right to do so, i don't think we have the necessary standards. it looks like we don't have a test or at least it seems that we as congresspersons are concerned, when is the test when the president should be notified? the key question tod
